Alcohol and Its Impact

Alcohol is a widely available and commonly consumed substance in most societies. Its affordability and legal status contribute to its popularity. While it can temporarily improve mood, boost confidence, and reduce anxiety, excessive and prolonged alcohol use can lead to significant physical and psychological problems.

Recommended daily limits for alcohol consumption are typically 3-4 units for men and 2-3 units for women. However, these are only guidelines, as some individuals may have greater tolerance, while others may be more sensitive to alcohol due to medical or psychological conditions.

Regularly exceeding these limits can result in a range of issues, including:

  • Affecting social and occupational functioning
  • Increased risk of engaging in illegal behaviour
  • Development of alcohol dependence, marked by a compulsion to drink despite harmful consequences

In the United Kingdom alone, problem drinking costs an estimated £20 billion per year and leads to 22,000 premature deaths.

Types of Alcohol Misuse or Dependence

  • Harmful drinking (high-risk drinking). A pattern of alcohol consumption that is causing mental or physical damage (ICD-10, DSM-V). Consumption (units per week): Drinking 35 units a week or more for women. Drinking 50 units a week or more for men.
  • Hazardous drinking (increasing risk drinking). A pattern of alcohol consumption that increases someone’s risk of harm. Some would limit this definition to the physical or mental health consequences (as in harmful use). Others would include the social consequences. The term is currently used by the World Health Organisation to describe this pattern of alcohol consumption. It is not a diagnostic term.
  • Consumption (units per week): Drinking more than 14 units a week, but less than 35 units a week for women. Drinking more than 14 units a week, but less than 50 units for men (Health Survey for England 2015: adult alcohol consumption)
  • Higher-risk drinking. Regularly consuming over 50 alcohol units per week (adult men) or over 35 units per week (adult women).
  • Alcohol dependence.  A cluster of behavioural, cognitive and physiological factors that typically include a strong desire to drink alcohol and difficulties in controlling its use. Someone who is alcohol-dependent may persist in drinking, despite harmful consequences. They will also give alcohol a higher priority than other activities and obligations. For further information, please refer to: ‘Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders’ (DSM-IV) (American Psychiatric Association 2000) and ‘International statistical classification of diseases and related health problems – 10th revision’ (ICD-10) (World Health Organization 2007).

Causes of Alcohol Dependency

Several factors can contribute to alcohol dependency:

Biological Factors

Genetic factors play a significant role, with genetics contributing 50-60% of the risk of developing alcohol-related problems. Alcohol affects the brain’s reward and survival centres through neurotransmitters like Dopamine, Serotonin, and GABA. Over time, excessive alcohol consumption can become strongly associated with feelings of pleasure or avoidance of negative emotions, leading to dependence.

Psychological Factors

Individuals may turn to alcohol when dealing with anxiety, stress, or depression. While it may provide short-term relief, it often fails to address underlying issues, resulting in worsening problems over time.

Social Factors 

The availability, cost, and social normalisation of alcohol, along with peer pressure and societal influences, contribute to increased consumption.

Private Alcohol Treatment with Claimont

Effective alcohol treatment involves a range of strategies:

Alcohol Detoxification

Abrupt withdrawal from alcohol in dependent individuals can lead to severe, even life-threatening symptoms, necessitating medical supervision and medication over a period of 7-10 days.

Treating Underlying Health Issues

Alcohol use can mask underlying physical and mental health conditions that require medical and psychological treatments.

Medication for Abstinence

Some individuals opt for medications that reduce alcohol cravings (e.g., acamprosate or naltrexone) or induce sickness upon alcohol consumption (e.g., ‘Antabuse’).

Psychological Therapies

Various therapeutic approaches, including cognitive-behavioural therapy, motivational interviewing, and 12-step methods based on the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), can help individuals maintain abstinence.
